This workshop is for Graduate Researchers at the University of Melbourne only.

Writer Charles Johnson very accurately said: “90% of good writing is re-writing.” In the creation of good prose the editing is as important as, or possibly even more important than, the writing. In fact, effective editing can make the difference between good writing and truly great writing. This workshop will show you how to keep your word count down in order to make your writing better. As Dr Seuss says: “So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.”

Presented by Mr Simon Clews, Director, Melbourne Engagement Lab, Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education
